  • Sidewall Printer Update

    27 Feb 2018 MCS Control Systems Ltd

    Project Description:  As part of an expansion programme, Huhtamaki needed increased production  at  their Gosport plant for producing food packaging.  A Sidewall Printing machine was a critical part of this expansion, and a suitable used machine was identified and purchased. However, as the machine was imported, the electrical, control, and safety systems of the machine needed reviewing and updating to meet the plant Health and Safety Standards.

  • Many cable crimping applications throughout the industry are conducted using manual ratchet tools or hand hydraulic tools. Depending on the number of operations conducted each day and the hand force required to close the handles of the tool, Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) can result.

  • Small drives for machines and equipment are typically powered up to 9.0 A, and are protected by conventional motor circuit breakers. However, when space in the enclosure is limited, it is very difficult to find room for significant numbers of protective components.

  • Charter Controls at Drives and Controls 2018

    15 Feb 2018 Charter Controls

    With many new suppliers and even more products to show, we thought what better way to do that than at the UK's largest electrical engineering exhibition.

    We have two stands next to each other and representatives from our suppliers all over the world coming to talk about their products which will be on display.

  • The all new Economical ballscrew drive with integrated ball return channels, will be on display on our stand D500 at the Drives & Controls show. 

    The NEW type F has significant price advantages that have been made possible through the most efficient nut production and economical spindle production in the cold rolling process that’s not been seen before from Eichenberger Gewinde yet at the same time offering the highest performance you’d expect from a Swiss made ballscrew.

  • On display in the UK for the first time, these high performance EtherCAT®-based controllers and multi-axis drives enable the use of various motor types that can be conveniently integrated into a wide variety of high-end and demanding automation applications.

    PI will be exhibiting a range of products from the ACS portfolio, including the latest NanoPWM™ amplifiers – offering linear amplifier performance with the power, robustness and cost-effectiveness of a PWM drive – and the LCM laser control module, which allows laser source operation to be synchronised to motion profiles. Alongside, visitors will be able to see the SPiiPlusES drive node, which enables the addition of more capable motion control to existing EtherCAT automation solutions. Also on the stand will be the innovative motion control solution for laser scribing – a collaborative development between PI, ACS Motion Control and SCANLAB – combining a high speed laser galvanometer scanner with servo-driven stages to offer fast, flexible and precise laser machining, eliminating stitching errors and increasing throughput.

  • The need for traceability has never been higher. Gone are the days when it was driven and executed by the largest companies. These days, traceability demands are driven by industries and are driven down the supply chain, meaning relatively small companies are requested to comply

  • CAE solution specialist EPLAN will be showcasing the benefits of EPLAN Cogineer, their new configuration-based software package at the 2018 Drives and Controls show. The show takes place from 10th to 12th April, 2018 at Birmingham’s NEC. Visitors to the EPLAN stand D712 will also have the opportunity to meet with EPLAN partners, including Weidmüller and Festo.
